I know a number of you from another forum.  Nigel gave me the heads up  , which I hope doesn't make him an outcast.  My interest is in hot rods and customs from the mid-60s or older.  Unfortunately, I'm much better at starting builds than finishing (right Al?), but I am trying to get better about completion.

Hey Dave, glad you made it over here buddy and a warm welcome to you.

In the words of Manuel in Fawlty Towers 'Ah know naaarthing'!!! LOL

Dave, by his own admission is more interested in the engineering side of modeling than completion and he has done some amazing scratch building, so I'm relying on you guys to push him hard to get some, even one, of his builds finished!!!

Sorry Dave, had to be done my friend.!! LOL

Manuel also said, "Ee-ven-tually!" Actually the best way to save time, build confidence and skills is with a quik "box stock" one. Here we welcome even good snap kits. What ever u can do we'll say "thank you." Manuel says "Gracias."

G'day Dave & welcome to the forum. Don't worry about slow builds, I'm a master at that.
Slow, not building that is.

Cheers,

Chris
